    Mariusz,

    I will try to answer questions if I can find the link on the web page?
    I had been interested in acravir and mks_vir before that, from what I have been able to find out it is a very good product, right now I'm waiting for av_comparatives to release their Feb review before I buy my next av software, is there any reason they don't review acravir or mks, is there a web site that had comparisons to other av's?

    Thanks,
    Billy S.

    that helps a little but I understand they have made a lot of improvements to their search engine since that test, id really like to see their detection rates now.

    Is it too late to win a freebee ( I don't really mean it) :D ?

    I bought a copy of AcaVir 2005 yesterday (Wednesday, 2/23) after testing the "ever-living" out of it for several days on two different machines. Overall, I found it to be a very solid product. Scanning speed is nothing to write home about but I will take accuracy over speed every time. I really liked all the "tweaks" built in to the product. I do computer security "stuff" for a living, if that means anything to you.....

    Hm,can anyone tell me what detection: Win32.4 mean? I'm guessing it's heuristic detection,but i'm not sure (i saw this severa times on Jotti along with Win32.x where x are other numbers like 1 or 3)
